    [Demo] Holding a contest [Demo]

    I am holding a contest and I already have the prizes in mind (trust me, they are AMAZING) but here is what I need help with:

    What type of contest can I hold to help the following:
    1) Stimulate the market
    2) Help user activity
    3) Promote posting
    4) Allow for a greater number of registrations
    5) Increase traffic to the website (number of guests greatly increase etc)
    6) Promote the website in a positive way, and encourages a friendly idea of the forum)

    I'm thinking of something that would allow for several tasks and a point based system, I am looking for help from the community to make this possible.

    I'll help to think of something.
    You could do something like a series of contests and such, and awards points for a certain task.
    Then at the end, whoever has the most points will determine who wins the prizes.

    Just an FYI everyone, the prizes are amazing (A)

    You could always do a survivor, but that takes a lot of time to set up the "challenges".

    I'm curious, survivor in what sense? I understand the idea but what would a specific challenge include? My ultimate goal is to get all 6 of those goals accomplished through this

    Referral and top poster are classic staples and usually do well.

    It sounds exciting ^_^ I'll be participating either way.

    Something that focuses on many things and not one skill would be great too

    Edit; Referral and top poster ones are boring tho ;_;

    Well, it would probably cover everything cept the registrations, as I'd be wary of people making fake new members just to win. But you could have contests that include making guides, helping members, making outside the forum posts and lures, not directly relating to how many people they reel in but how they do it.

    Alternately, you could do something along the lines of the superlatives, but instead of being voted on, you actually did things to increase the points in each catagory. Most helpful would have the most helpful posts, most talkative would (not have the most post count, STEVE) but engage the most people in conversations. Anything you say that people would have to do to earn a prize would make that area rise tenfold.
